”A Sick Life”

Battle Helm Rating

The first thing I thought about when I saw this band’s name was the death roll of a crocodile. How they twist and turn once they have caught a prey. This is a Japanese black metal band, or so I am told. It might just be me, but I feel that there is much more to this than just a plain black metal band. I hear a clear crust feeling too. Not that I complain. This is still a cool record. It is just that the mix of styles confused me to begin with. As much as I love black metal, I also like bands like Anti Cimex or Discharge. The more I listen to this the more I am not that convinced that that this is predominantly a black metal band. I would like to label this a crust with black influences. But no matter what comes first this is still a really nice record. Anders Ekdahl
